Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Saturday said that rumours that a change in the leadership of the Pakistan army was being considered as very absurd and baseless. In a tweet, he said that such rumours were being spread under a plan and the government condemned and completely denied these rumours. Meanwhile, Fawad Hussain on Saturday took strong exception to the campaign launched by a media house alleging that Pakistan Tehreeke-Insaf (PTI) workers had a plan for violence on National Assembly session day. He, in a tweet, rejected the campaign and termed the news about “violent” protests of the PTI workers “fake”. “Tehreek-e-Insaf is the party of the middle class,” he said while describing the campaign of the antigovernment media houses about the PTI workers as “surprising”. Fawad said the civilized nation would hold the protests in a civilized manner. Earlier he said that today, voting would be between the narratives of independent, sovereign Pakistan and subjugated Pakistan. Talking informally to media in the Parliament House he said on the one hand was respect of Pakistan and the nation of Pakistan while on the other hand were those who term the nation as beggars. He said that today was occasion like 1947 when the nation won freedom under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. “Pakistan is an independent and proud nation, it will never go with those who call themselves beggars,” Chaudhry Fawad said. The minister said that members involved in the floor-crossing have already lost their dignity and their political careers would end if disqualified for life
